Stayed here 22nd April for one night before our trip to Florida.
Check in was relatively quick, though I think we confused the receptionist by paying cash!
We had booked a family room for myself, hubby and two small girls-we actually had two rooms with an interconnecting door. However when we arrived in the room the connecting door was still locked, which meant a trip back down 3 floors to ask for the door to be opened. We were told someone would be with us shortly....In the meantime my hubby and I went into the room the children were staying in to settle them in- when we tried to return to our own room, our pass keys didnt work - which meant ANOTHER trip down to Reception so we could get new keys! We finally got in OUR room but my hubby hung around in the corridor until he managed to grab a passing housemaid who kindly opened the connecting door for us..
Our bed was huge, very comfy to sleep on...however the bed is set across the corner of the room, so no headboard to prop yourself up against - so no watching tv sat up in bed!!
The pillows were one of the worst I have had in a hotel...they looked big and full, but as soon as you laid your head on them..pfffft!!! They flattened down to nothing-but fluffed out at the side of you so you felt like you were suffocating in a giant marshmallow! I folded this was and that..in the end I rolled up my jumper and used that as well.
The TV in the children's room didn't work at all. Wasn't such a big deal as we had to be up early anyway.
Bathroom is lovely, very bright and spacious.
We ate in the cafe bar...food was fine.
The rooms were very quiet - I didn't hear a single plane! Had a good nights sleep (apart from the pillow saga)
When we came back for the car after our holiday, we couldnt get out of the car park because the ticket we were given for the car park barrier hadnt been activated...once again hubby had to make the trek to Reception to get the card sorted!
All in all, I would stay here again because of the location and a decent bed..but think I'd take my own pillow!!
